📝 Sea Commander restoration.
Hi there folks, a little late, but now we'll under way.
The Hull was stripped and stabilised as it had quite a bit of delamination, once solid I coated with 0.03mm glass cloth and Eze-Kote.
Then primed with filler primer
, followed by a good rub down with 1000 grit wet and dry. Primed again and rubbed down between coats, 4 coats.
Top coat is Fiat caprice blue, 6 coats wit rub down with 2500 wet and dry between first 5 coats then I used G3 rubbing compound. It's now ready for lacquer. But I have to rebuild the cabins first.
I have fitted the new propshaft, prop, water pick up and outlet. Also the new rudder.
Have cut away the old diesel engine mounts and made a platform for the Taycol Supermarine motor which was rebuilt and modified by RNmunich (Doug). Was hoping to get her ready for the steam and vintage show at the end of the month.
Some way to go but I have a goal and will try to achieve it.
PS. I can't get the pictures to upload from the app. I will try to use the computer
